    Citibank Is Anti-Second Amendment

    The following is from the Gun Owners of America website - Citibank Is Anti-Second Amendment


    Citibank Is Anti-Second Amendment
    Bill Davison got quite a surprise recently. After banking with Citibank for two years, he was informed that his account was being closed. Actually, it was not a personal account, but for his business – Tac Pro Shooting Center in Mingus, TX.

    He obtained a written policy statement from the bank indicating that along with pornography businesses, any business selling firearms is viewed as a dangerous business that the bank will not serve. I just love lumping guns and girlies together.

    If you bank with Citibank, I would suggest that you pull your account and find another bank which you can do here: TheStreet.com Bank Safety Screener | TheStreet.com. You will notice that Citibank has a D rating. Not very sound.

    Citibank is full of toxic assets and is not a stable business for you to place your funds for safekeeping. This is a two-fer: you get to put your funds in a safer bank, and you get to “vote” against an anti-gun company.

    A number of other banks have been content to operate in a much more conservative way. They are often smaller, and frequently operate at a local or regional level. Their policies have kept them from being forced to make loans to people who could not repay.

    All you have to do to find all the A-rated banks in your state is select “A” for the rating you want, select your state, and go.

    That came out about a year ago. Many canceled their account including me. At first I didn't think I had an account but after checking I saw my Sears card was through them. Here is the thread on it last year. http://www.usacarry.com/forums/off-t...nsactions.html

    For one, get rid of your credit cards all together, and you won't have to worry about it.

    Two, and a BIG two.....pull your money from any corporate bank, and open accounts with a local institution. They are friendlier, service-oriented, and you keep your money in the local economy. Furthermore, they are the places that have NOT contributed to the financial mess, and thereby have not received your TARP money.

    Very Smart PF... US too, cash for everything, even our old car. We have to use a MC/VISA logo card to travel with, but it is attached to a low balance, small checking account.

    That's exactly what we did! No more credit cards, no more big corporate banks!

    New blurb in G&A Handguns says they are still up to their tricks. Even denying Home Depot credit cards to firearms parts makers.
